Special Issue "Meeting Sustainable Development Goals by Reducing Food Loss"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2020) | Viewed by 14656
The target set by the UN is to halve the per capita global food waste by 2030 at the retail and consumer levels and reduce food losses along the production and supply chains, including post-harvest losses. Food loss is affecting various aspects of the food supply chain and many aspects of society—producers, growers, retail, hospitality, consumers, and those who experience food poverty.
The aim and scope of this Special Issue is to provide a unique platform for a wide range of professionals, including scholars, researchers, academicians, business, and industry to discuss and present high-quality research linking reduction of food waste to any of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and the associated 169 targets.
We anticipate that this Special Issue will open new frontiers for further research and technology improvements in this important area.
